have gotten tough but we're going to get through this together. as the city always does. let me summarize for our spanish speakers in our audience. [ speaking in spanish ] [ speaking in spanish ] so the message is one more time, don't call 911 unless it's a real life-threatening emergency and number two, don't go out and don't drive. you're just blocking the emergency vehicles from getting where they want to go. but for most of the people who stayed off the roads and particularly all of those who got out of zone a when we ordered everybody to get out, you made the right decision. and we're grateful for the cooperation. and we'll do everything we can to get all the services we need to everybody and to get this city back going. most of it, i hope, will come back during the day tomorrow. and we're just going to get through this the way we always do. thank you very much. >> that was new york city mayor michael bloomberg with his update on the storms effects on new york city. we continue our live coverage of sandy now classified as a post tropical cyclone by the national hurricane ce

the president has received from the salt lake city tribune or "washington post" or one from colin powell yesterday, it had to do with barack obama the policies of the past four years and what he wants to do in the future but the fact that they have no idea what this other person is. and they have no idea who he's going to bring into the white house with him if he were to end up winning. >> as we talk about endorsements "the new yorker" had an extended endorsement of barack obama. not mitt romney. i want to read an excerpt. i thought they both argued on behalf of the president's record thus far and argued sort of the counter factual option which is, if the key note of obama's administration has been public investment whether in infrastructure, education or health, the keynote of romney's candiedisy has been private equity. a democracy cannot lay off its failing citizens. it cannot be content to leave any of its citizens behind and not the 47% who romney wishes to fire from the policy. very strong words. we've gone back and forth about who mitt romney is and how the campaign portrayed him.
a population of over 22 million people. when new york city evacuated just these areas in the five burrows for this storm, the people who were subject to just that order, just the people who live in the red area as marked on this map, just those people and just that population was larger than half the population of more than a handful of u.s. states. just the population in that evacuation area is the population of the whole city of new orleans and as you can see, this is just a fraction of that densely populated area. and a lot remain living under circumstances they have never lived in before. tonight rescue efforts here are ongoing in northern new jersey. several towns along the hackensack river were inundated with water when a tidal surge from the river overflowed its banks. normally the water rises up through the ground, but this time they said it came down the streets and started pouring into their basements first like a trickle and then as one little boy will describe like a waterfall. they said there was no place to run, no place to hide. they literally had 15 to 45 minutes depending

a fireball that exploded on the city's east side. here you're going to see it happening at the con ed substation along the east river. fortunately no one was hurt in that explosion but it did knock out power to about a quarter of a million people here in new york city. a spokesman for con ed says that what they're experiencing tonight is the largest storm-related outage in con ed's history. in new jersey, the nation's oldest nuclear power plant was put on alert tonight after rising floodwaters there. that is the oyster creek nuclear power plant. it was already in a regularly scheduled outage, but u.s. nuclear regulators say that they're continuing to monitor the situation there. now, the death toll, there are at least 13 confirmed fatalities because of this storm so far. that number, of course, could rise especially as this cleanup and recovery effort heads into the early morning hours. i'm chris jansing. you are watching msnbc's continuing live coverage of superstorm sandy. we are going to be live throughout the night. we have reporters all across the region. and msnbc meteorologi

this hour from new york city mayor michael bloomberg. the city that never sleeps is hunkered down. from lower manhattan the subway is closed and the stock exchange is closed as well. president obama canceling plans to attend a rally in florida with bill clinton and instead headed back to the white house to monitor the storm from the situation room. he canceled an event in green bay, wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is campaign and get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and health and property being saved here. >> the former president, the unofficial secretary of explaining stuff, took to the stage in the sunshine state solo. republican mitt romney will campaign today out of the storm's path in the battleground state of ohio yesterday offering these words for those in sandy's way. >> i think that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> what remains to be seen is ho

we suffered across the city, is clearly extensive and will not be repaired overnight. >> people put themselves in the way of danger that was really inspirational. and if it wasn't for the national guard and the state police and the nypd and what the agencies at this table did, i think that's the number of the loss of life would have been much greater. >> even new york hospital was forced to evacuate last night when emergency generators failed. babies, newborns taken out of the nicu. the new york stock exchange closed today. it will reopen tomorrow. it was the first two-day weather closing since the blizzard of 18 8. it was a night to remember or forget. >> there's a mandatory evacuation order under effect. real concern here is to the inland lakes connect to the ocean and wipe out the town in this area. >> this is a dangerous situation. police are creating a collapse zone. no cars, no pedestrians around the area of 57th street where this building is under construction and this is crane is dangerously dangling over the street. >> the storm surge right now, that's just the water rise a

to mare land. winds will get stronger throughout the night. it's caused massive damage. in atlantic city, part of the boardwalk is gone that we all grew up with. widespread flooding with parts of ocean city, maryland, and delaware is under water. midtown, manhattan, police closed off streets where a crane collapsed and remains dangling. more than 1.6 million homes are without power and trains, subways, and other transportation systems have been suspended. nearly 14,000 flights have been grounded. we begin our coverage tonight with nbc's tan truong. what's been developing along the water? >> reporter: well, the water is rising as high tide will hit around 8:00 and that's going to be the true test for rehoboth beach. in the hours going from 8:00 p.m. here throughout the evening and into midnight and well past midnight, he's worried that as the tide starts to increase and we get more of the winds coming off shore, it's going to push the water that you've seen behind me inland and up around this board lock and this is the same concern that you'll hear along coastal delaware. right now they h
minor damage occurring at this high tide cycle. the next one in new york city down by battery park is just after 9:00 a.m. this morning. it is not expected to be high enough this time to flood the streets and flood the subways like the one did last night at 8:00. but we still need to watch it. it is still going to be much higher than normal. the one last night was 13 feet. this one should be more like 9 feet or 8 feet, more similar to what we saw monday morning. so that's the one big concern we're going to deal with as we go throughout the morning hours. the other issue we're dealing with as we go throughout the morning is we're going to continue to watch the gusty winds out there and the temperatures. we now have seven million people in this region without power. and now we have the cold winter time air moving in behind this storm. look at the temperature in d.c. right now, 44. the wind chill is 36. these people don't have power. the temperatures in their house have been dropping all night long. and the wind chill even in new york city now is 47. so all the two million people in j

jersey not too far from atlantic city at about 8:00 p.m., sustained winds of 80 miles per hour, that's hurricane force, folks. and hurricane-force winds extended up to 175 miles from the center of the storm. tropical force storm winds spread out 485 miles from the center, a 13-foot storm surge flooded battery park city in lower manhattan and that broke a record that had been set in 1821. records were shattered in sandy hook, new jersey, where tide levels also topped 13 feet. the metropolitan transportation authority is calling this the worst disaster in the 108-year history of the new york subway system, and the flooding isn't over. hundreds of people are being evacuated this morning after a tidal gate broke in northern new jersey flooding three towns there. the national weather service says the potomac river is likely to experience its worst floods in 16 years beginning tonight. the flooding is expected between hancock, maryland, and washington, d.c. flood waters along the new york city coastline made it difficult for first responders to reach a massive six-alarm fire which began ov

there. all the while, resenting the african-american turnout machine. in the city of cleveland, ohio, african-american voters are 26 times more likely than white voters to use early in-person voting as their preferred way of voting. for this election in particular, even though it's been fine for every election in the past seven years, for this election in particular, early in person voting must be stopped. to the point of taking it to the supreme court of the united states with 28 days left before the election and meanwhile leaving the whole state's voting rules hanging. as ohio hits its voter registration deadline today and so many other states as well, what we know about how the parties have done on voter registration in the swing states opens a real interesting window into how the two parties are contesting the important states. this is a matter not just of national but of international importance. you can tell because the guardian newspaper from the uk has published a deep look into swing state voter registration numbers this past weaning. you can see their headline here. democra

attached to them for the global financial crisis. i think people on wall street and in the city of london for that matter are frankly just had enough of hearing this, the blame game. they're putting their money where their mouth is. and that's mitt romney right now. back to you. >> yeah, the numbers last time around 2008, employees of goldman sachs gave more than a million dollars to mr. obama. this time around, $136,000. jeff cutmore in london, thanks so much. still ahead, ichiro doing some acrobatics, dancing around the catcher to score last night in a play-off game the orioles had to have. highlights from that one-run game ahead in sports. plus, jon stewart tackles the conspiracy theory surrounding friday's employment numbers. that clip and a check on weather when "way too early" comes back. >> i do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of american leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.

ago was just starting to rise. since then in that 24 hours the city has been crippled. we're talking about $20 billion in infrastructure damage, $10 billion to $30 billion in lost business reeceipts. if those numbers are right by some estimates, that would be the worst disaster in u.s. history. we're also looking at a subway system, the best in the world some say, that currently is not working, not functional, and won't be for several days. it could be more than that. electricity south of 39th street gone for the most part. overnight and now today in some parts of where i'm standing right now, battery park on the southern tip of manhattan, they don't even have cell service, they don't have broadband service here and there. they've just taken down a tree that was felled not too long ago. that took about 45 minutes. up to my right there's a residential tower, just to give you a sense of how the financial center of the united states is not necessarily at its best, crippled at the moment, that tower normally would be lit up with lights. they're not right now. martin, it is difficult goin
're going to have more on that in a moment. >>> first, in new york city the subway system remains crippled after heavy flooding caused what officials say the worst damage in its 108 year history. no one knows when it will be up and running again. >>> let's go back to new jersey. there were countless rescues there and for some the realization that they were no match for mother nature. >> terrible. it was awful. it was the worst thing i ever saw. the waters came down like crazy. we were sorry we stayed. >>> new jersey appears to have taken the brunt. the weather channel's dave malkoff is live for us in toms river, new jersey. one of the hfof the hardest hit. thanks for being with us. what's it look like this morning? >> good morning. you can see where we are right now. we are standing right next to a boat. but as we pull out, you can see the boat is nowhere near the marina. we're right in the middle of the highway. the 30-foot boat is just contained of sitting there. if you read the back, it says that it came from beachwood which is down about that way, but if you look across that bridge, th
at the images of the flooding in new york city to see why. a nearly 14-foot storm surge engulfed lower manhattan last night and roadways on the east river were overflowing. tunnels filmed with seawater. streets surrounding apartment buildings were submerged. most of lower manhattan continues to be without power at this hour. the new york city subway system is still 23409 running as transit workers deal with the flooded tunnels and the damaging effects of saltwater. the underground path train connecting new york to new jersey is still also washed out. this photo captures the peak hour of flooding last night at the world trade center construction site. a six-alarm inferno raged in the queens neighborhood of breezy point point and officials say more than 80 homes were burned beyond repair. more than 100 homes in the community were damaged. amazingly there were no fatalities. mayor michael bloomberg said there were 23 friars throughout new york including this one. you're watching an explosion at a con ed son power station at manhattan's east side. con edison said this is the worst storm outage situa
. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper with governor christie. it was interesting. it was just governor christie. no other entourage greeting the president. just president and administrator fugate. they got on marine one which was brought up here and that's what they're doing now and just the three of them along with jack law the chief of staff on one helicopter and they're doing that tour as you know yesterday it was after governor christie did his first tell conference tour of the shore he was a different guy in the press briefing. clearly shaken him up. so then the pictures we have been seeing today, obviously, with going up in the -- it's just what you're seeing today and what people are seeing today you now understand the emotional response that governor christie had and others from new jersey had as they have seen the devastation up close so that's what they're doing now and you're right. you know, it is a picture and at the same time this is the best politics in a situation like this. >> and we actually heard from one of the congressman f
. we are going to begin with a collision that almost killed three people. a new york city ambulance was responding to a call when an suv barrelled right into it. the impact was so powerful, it caused the ambulance to topple over. the suv driver suffered severe neck injuries. all expected to survive. look at this sight in florida. it's kind of cute. the firefighters had to use a special oxygen mask to save two birds. they were rescued from a raging house fire. there were three cats that did not make it out. >>> finally, you are not going to believe what washed up on a florida beach. a giant eyeball. it's the size of a softball. it's turned over to florida wildlife officials. it has marine biologists stumped. they are not sure what sea creature has such a big eye. it could be a giant squid or october put. it is big and it is blue. that's for sure. >>> now, for a look at the national weather, we turn to meteorologist bill karins. he probably has a conspiracy theory. why would i think that? >> government. not sure which one but it's a government ploy somewhere. keep the kids out of the
york and new jersey. >> this was a devastating storm. >> in atlantic city part of the famous boardwalk washed away. >> ground zero, flood water is rushing into the construction site. >> many homes completely covered. >> massive six-alarm fire in new york's borough of queens. >> 3 feet of snow in parts of west virginia. >> 7.8 million people without power. >> flights are canceled. subways are shutdown. >> the federal government is closed. the new york stock exchange is closed. >> we're a week from election day. >> just seven days to go. >> i don't give a damn about election day. >> this storm is not yet over. >> the president has been all over this. he deserves great credit. >> the election will take care of itself. >> i will tell you, this administration could give a damn less about election day. >> they talked about people having a hard time. >> governor romney did attend an even in ohio. >> why ohio? why kmuz hchoose ohio? >> a storm relief event. >> if you have canned goods, bring them along. >> you need fema and need support. >> fema is about to run out of money. how do you deal wi
here, new jersey can speak for the region and there's no need for you to come to new york city. what do you think that's about? >> well, i think that's about recovering from the storm. it is real difficult for any white house -- or any city that's been hit boy a storm to deal with a motorcade and a presidential -- a bunch of secret service vans all over the place. that gets in the way of recovery efforts. if there's a place he can go in new jersey to see the damage without getting in the way of the recovery, that's where president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine
historic flooding tonight into tomorrow. >> i'm s.e. cupp. this is ocean city, maryland, the famous fishing pier is half gone according to the governor. in point pleasant, new jersey, pleasant isn't the word to describe the conditions there. >> we're learning of a partial crane collapse in midtown manhattan. tropical storm conditions have moved in with high winds and heavy rain. conditions are going downhill from here. times square, it looks like time is standing still there this afternoon. the normally busy tourist hub is more of a ghost town because sandy is in town. parts of lower manhattan brace for an 11-foot storm surge at high tide tonight. widespread flooding is on a concern on the streets and xwrur underground and prompted a complete shutdown of mass transit. bloomberg and chris christie is reiterating why it's like nothing we've seen before. >> this is a massive storm. >> when it comes in tonight, we can't come in and rescue you. it's going to be dark, electricity most likely will be out if it's not already. >> i'm krystal ball. it's not just mere in the tri-state area. capitol hi
but those are all things that new jerseyans have in abundance. >> much of new york city is still crippled, subways flooded, fires still smoldering. but the governor has just announced some progress. >> limited commuter rail service on metro north and the lir will begin 2:00 p.m. today. and limited new york city subway service, supplemented by a bus, which we can give you more details on from brooklyn to manhattan will begin tomorrow. >> the exchange back in business today. >> and mitt romney is back on the campaign trail, in florida. >> so i believe that this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform. and a president that brings us together. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. misery from sandy is coming along the northeast corridor with fires burning in new jersey and search and rescue operations going on. one of the hardest had hit in the state is point pleasant beach where we find nbc's ron allen who rode out the storm there and met with a beach front resident that surveyed the damage. >> that was the whole dining area. the
owner of new york city-based rosenwalk tanks. >> i will, thank. >> you look across new york skyline. from brooklyn to manhattan to the bronx, and you will find his family's handmade wooden tanks proudly perched on rooftop after rooftop after rooftop. >> he if these tanks look old-fashioned, that's because they are. even today these wooden structures are shaped by hand with half century old tools made by his father wab wallace. this is a family owned company nearly 150 years old. >> they are described as abandoned relics. actually they are used today in plenty, in new buildings. the city has the strict imfire codes in new york and the tanks service that requirement. . >> as outdated as they may seem, they are in fact anything but out of date. and for that matter, so is the company itself. >> we have a city of stone and masonry and glass and they really don't look like they belong. but it is a well-used product and probably new york's best secret. >> if you want to understand the secret of how the small family held business managed to outlast more than a dozen competitors for more tha
to the news, live at 5:30 a.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. we'll start with 48 hours after president obama and mitt romney sparred in a combative, intense debate on tuesday night, the two candidates found themselves face-to-face in a much different setting last night in new york city at the al smith catholic charity dinner. it's an event held about two blocks away. that's become a tradition for presidents to stop at. it gives them a chance to loosen up and have a few laughs before they become president as candidates. romney spoke first, poking fun at himself before telling a few jokes at the president's xprens. >> a campaign can require a lot of wardrobe changes. blue jeans in the morning perhaps, suit for lunch fund-raiser, sport coat for dinner but it's nice to finally relax and to wear what ann and i wear around the house. the al smith dinner surely lives up to its billing. usually when i get invited to gatherings like this it's just to be the designated driver. of course we're down to the final months of the president's term. as presidents -- [ applause ] as president obama surve
